URISE Initiative for Africa was established in October 2016 and was formally registered by the Turkana County Ministry of Labor, Social Security and Services in February 2017 with the vision to empower youth with transformative and innovative skills that they can use to be self-reliant and to serve as good ambassadors of Peace in their respective communities. URISE Initiative for Africa is a refugee-led organization that guides young refugees to find meaning through life skills, social and economic empowerment. We use technology to train young refugees with relevant ICT skills that they can apply in real-life situations to build their social and economic value. We merge the use of technology and peace education to instill the spirit of peace-building and peace-making to young refugee generation. Besides, we develop skills in areas such as leadership, peace building and social entrepreneurship to youths from various communities for peaceful coexistence between and among refugees communities.
